Get IT Requirements Right by Improving Your People Skills, Leverage the Power of Both Your Conscious and Nonconscious Minds to Help Stakeholders Reveal Their True Business Needs.
Getting domain experts to express their business needs is a difficult task. It’s not that they don’t want to cooperate; it’s just that they often don’t know what they want or how to express it. A great deal of the problem lies in how our minds work and communicate. Modern neuroscience studies reveal that we make the vast majority of our choices without being consciously aware of it. These studies suggest that the solution lies in improving our ability to communicate with our nonconscious mind.
